, specifically the german chancellor, angela merkel, what they testified to today is that this kind of collection, including listening in on the telephone calls of foreign leaders, is a bedrock principle of intelligence and has been for decades, and that this is information was clearly understood by the white house, by the national security council staff, and also by people who sit on the congressional intelligence committees, which raises questions about the statements by senator feinstein, who leads the senate intelligence committee, she seemed to be unaware or was not fully briefed on the scope of these surveillance programs. >> what about the talk of possible changes in policy? >> well, probably a half dozen proposals now on the table. if i was going to break them down very simply, they sort of fall into two baskets. one really advocates taking this collection of phone records and rather than having the u.s. government hold all of this so-called met data, that would be held by the phone companies instead, and we government has a queriry they have to ask the phone companies for information abo
about them. >> and if he didn't know that the phones were being tapped of angela merkel is that conceivable if he is getting the information from those phone taps. >> as a general matter he must have known that foreign governments were under surveillance by our government. if he didn't know that that would be, i guess, negligence. but i agree -- this was the guy who was supposed to be on top of it. he with a as reaction to bush who was so dumb. this guy is a genius. is he a policy guy. he is not a policy guy. he is a talker. >> that is it for the panel. stay tuned to see how the president played the odds in foreign policy. at od, whatever business you're in, that's the business we're in. with premium service like one of the best on-time delivery records and a low claims ratio, we do whatever it takes to make your business our business. od. helping the world keep promises. >>> finally tonight, president obama is under fire from world leaders for tapping their cell phones and listening in. one show points out he is really just staying true to his own word. >> true partners
that the national security agency eavesdroped on german chancellor angela merkel. the n.s.a.'s director, army general keith al sander the, defended the general practice of surveillance in the u.s. and abroad to prevent terrorist attacks. >> there has not been a mass casualty here in the u.s. since 2001. that's not by luck! they didn't stop hating us. they didn't say that they were going to just forgive this. they continue to try. it is the great members in the intelligence community, our military, our law enforcement that has stood up and said this is our job and we do it without w our partners and allies. >> reporter:. >> woodruff: house intelligence committee chairman mike rogers also defended the efforts. >> the way we go forsword to make sure our programs are protected and by people who are doing their best not be demonized in the process. this is the time for leadership? a very dangerous and chaotic world. it's not a time to apologize. >> woodruff: on the other hand, democrat jan schakowsky of illinois underscored concerns by some that the surveillance has gone too far. >> why did we not
